The Raven Poster

Since they can't show blood, how about a dark red poster with a dripping raven? That'll do! I use the word "iconic" because how many other movies are marketing with imagery alone? (Oh right.) A second teaser poster for James McTeigue's The Raven has hit the web via Latino Review and it's a brand new design, but still sleek and visually striking. The first teaser poster for The Raven, starring John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe, was revealed at Comic-Con, along with some early footage, but Relativity still hasn't put out a trailer yet. I'm looking forward to this and hopefully this is a sign we may finally see something soon. Take a look!

Poster has been removed at the request of the studio. We're not sure why they wanted it down, but were told a replacement won't be coming in October. Sorry guys!

The Raven is inspired by the famous Edgar Allen Poe poem. McTeigue explained to us years ago that it's "an amalgamation of Poe's stories crossed with Se7en. It's about a serial killer loose in 1849 Baltimore." As for the actual plot, he stated that "at each murder that he does, the killer leaves a clue, and basically Poe is set against the clock to find someone before they die." The screenplay was by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare. Relativity and Rogue Pictures are distributing and have set a release date on March 9th, 2012 next year for The Raven, so we've got something to look forward to at least! Stay tuned. Look good?
